Coverage for Medical Expenses and Legal Defense if FIDO Causes An Injury
– Center for Disease Control and Prevention
Dog bite injuries total over $400 million per year in medical and liability claims. Many homeowners or renters insurance policies exclude coverage for injuries caused by dogs, resulting in out-of-pocket expenses for pet owners. In addition, many landlords and property management companies may be reluctant to rent to people with dogs particularly certain breed — especially if you don’t have coverage for canine liability claims.
We are pleased to offer a solution to dog bite liability with Canine Liability coverage, a pet insurance program catering to concerned owners, available through Dean Insurance, an independent insurance agency established in 1994.
The Canine Liability insurance policy offers broad coverage, no deductible, and is available in all states, except Alaska. Each dog is individually underwritten so no specific breed is excluded. Plus, with our policy, we can add the property management company or landlord on the policy as an additional insured.
Dog bite insurance is crucial for any responsible pet owner in securing yourself from liability should your dog bite an individual and cause harm. Protect yourself with a policy today!
